Tomten/Robin Goodfellow

This is a film made with inspiration from a classic Swedish poem by Viktor Rydberg. It’s an old film from 1941 but I love it both now and when I was a child.

Thanks Lea, you inspired me to this post. Your comment about how we can understand poem in foreign languages though we don’t understand the language.

This poem tells about Swedish little people legends.

I did a pastell painting of Santas head couple of years ago. I wonder what his thoughts are under that Santa hat 😉
